GRWM: Valentines Renewed Vows look

Last Sunday a local tourist spot known for weddings was doing their yearly Valentines time frame wedding vows renewal. My hubby and I had taken our younger two earlier in the year to tour the cave and the tour guide told the group about how they do this every year for free. I mentioned how awesome it would be to do that and as usual my husband acted between non-committal to why bother. So I never brought it up again. I did however ask for at Christmas a weekend away without our kids like a second honeymoon. We never got a first honeymoon as we got married when my pregnant hormones went into full gear and decided I had to be married before our oldest was born. Needless to say I did not want a honeymoon at 7 months pregnant. Though loads of people now do pregnant getaways I had never heard of that thirteen years ago.

So when my husband last Friday said to me that he wanted to go this Sunday and renew our vows. I WAS AWED! He later would tell me it is cheaper to be romantic that way then a weekend getaway. HA We did get  lots of free things to go with the renewal and it was super sweet. We didn’t know how it worked so we wrote our own vows. I will be posting the whole experience on my personal reflection blog on Friday. I will link it in my Friday planned post here. Man I can really complicate simple stuff huh. *** Warning the personal blog is pretty juicy as it details my raw life and how I am trying to cope with mental illness.

Ok so onto how I completed a smokey pink Romantic look.

047
The night before I started with a good mask. It was a sample I had handy.
048
As you can see this is a great mask though I believe pricey. If I won the lottery I would buy it but otherwise the cheaper stuff I am using is working fine for me 😀
049
Next Morning I cleaned my face, re-vitalized, and moisturizer.
051
My normal clean face … ready for the transformation?
052
I prepped my eyes with these items as I have oily lids.
055
I decided to use the Silk Natural Urban Decay dupe shades
054
Eyes Primed and ready to go
056
First my crease and transition shade I used the same shade. This shade is a dupe for the UD Nooner. Great matte shade.
057
Next I applied Virtual to my lid for a little soft shimmer. it is a dupe for UD
Liar
058
I smoked it out with Portal which is dupe for UD Blackheart
061
Before blending
062
Highlight with Cache dupe for UD Strange — also blended with a fluffy brush
059
Time to line the waterline and tightline and upper line
060
So far so good 😀 But maybe I am partial lol
063
These colors are great for bringing out hazel/green eyes.
069
Prime those pores!
064
under eye some depotted revlon line filler … my girlfriend and I went halfs on it and I let her keep the tube, and then rest of the face the prime time
065
Trying out this stuff. So far I really like it. I learned quick you DO NOT NEED a lot!
067
Redness gone 😀
070
Next used my MAC Mineralized foundation. This is awesome foundation in winter.
071
Gives a nice dewy glow look to the face… in my opinion.
072
I used the beauty blender to apply the foundation. In hindsight it absorbed way too much as this is not a waxy kind of foundation. I had to do four pumps to get the coverage when by hand just two … next time I will use it to blend after putting on by hand.
035
contoured with my trusty Sonia Kashuk bronzer
075
Can you tell where I put it? — forehead, under cheek bone, nose, and under chin,
073
Got this new from Ulta I wanted something super light to help highlight it is hard to find.
074
Area’s placed
077
blended with beauty blender
076
powder to seal
066
gave my skin a not so pale natural look
078
Decided needed more added highlight on the upper cheeks and nose
079
Ta Da 😀
080
Eyebrows next — still loving my Tarte brow mousse
081
On point but again I could be partial lol

 

nikon122313 033
Light blush
082
Just before last steps
084
Lip prep
085
Red lip — I love this lippie! And the mascara is in my top three.
088
Hair help and smell good stuff (like I said trying out my box stuff)
087
The final look
089
smoochie booches Bitches lol (extra points if you get the reference!)

So that is it. I hope you enjoyed this GRWM tutorial it was find to do and for a good cause. May you Valentine’s Day Or Anti-Valentines day be awesome as well.

Coastal Scents Revealed Part two

So I went lazy on my Revealed Coastal Scents review. Mainly showing looks I made it with. I was asked for more individual swatches and thoughts so… this afternoon I have been working on showing the palette itself better.

Here is my picture of the actual palette.

revealed palette

 

After I swatched all of shadows I realized I really barely got into how much of a hidden gem this palette really is. So I am glad I was asked to further review this. Thanks my following peeps for not letting me be lazy I do totally mean it!!!  😀 So onto the group swatches.

revealed color19
Color 19 — super creamy texture shimmery color *** One of my faves
revealed color20
Color 20 — chalky texture matte with glitter bits color *** my least favorite and hard to blend

 

One con is that the shades do not have names and when I was trying to keep track the week I wore it on my eyes it was difficult. (More cuz of me then the palette itself I am always running behind!) Still part of the fun of eyeshadows is the fun names the companies come up with. Also no mirror and palettes should have mirrors just my total honest opinion!!!

Two pros not discussed before is the matte colors are awesome for the crease. So that alone is worth the cost of the palette *** if you can wait for a half off sale. The other favorites of mine probably do make it worth twenty as for the most part the quality is totally there. I am probably being too hard on it as I do love it. I just didn’t like their customer service. Be warned their return policy and their customer service folks are pretty strict on their rules. I bought one for twenty and the next day it went on sale for ten. Actually less than eight hours later. They didn’t care. So I returned it because I was so irritated and I have anger issues like that when it comes to customer service. Thankfully my friend did get it for me at Christmas so win win I guess for me. I am out my shipping grrr for being a brat I guess and returning it 😀

Oh and the second pro (after my babble rant lol) is it stays closed perfectly with some magnets in the packaging so I would not be afraid to travel with it.

Ok so I hope this improved on the previous post you can find here on this
